2013-'15 Fiat 500e Recalled for Stalling Risk


WASHINGTON FCA US is recalling 5,660 2013-'15 Fiat 500e electric cars because a software problem may lead to a stalling risk, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

"If the vehicle goes into limp-home mode, incompatible software between Electric Vehicle Control Unit and Battery Pack Control Module may cause the electric propulsion system to fully shut down," said NHTSA in its recall summary. "An electric propulsion system shutdown will cause a stall-like condition."

FCA US spokesman Eric Mayne told Edmunds there are no injuries or crashes linked to the recall.

The affected cars were built from March 27, 2012 to November 1, 2014.

Fiat dealers will update the vehicle software to ensure compatibility between components. The recall is expected to begin on May 15. Owners can contact Chrysler customer service at 1-800-853-1403.

Edmunds says: Owners should wait for their official recall notice before scheduling a service appointment. But if you are experiencing a problem, it's best to contact your dealer now.
